We once bought a blue clay from a friend herbalist. Blue clay was sold in pieces. Before use, I crush it. If you, like me, clay slices, grind it into dust. Grind clay follows a wooden object. A clay shop is sold in a shredded form.
In fact, the blue clay is not blue at all, it has a slightly grayish color. But as we explained the familiar herbalist, the darker the clay, the more radium in it, and the lighter the more kaolin.
